Kim Kardashian, the really real reality and sextape star is moving to the big screen!
According to a new report by Deadline, Kimmie will star in Tyler Perry’s new film The Marriage Counselor! Kinda ironic, considering her own marital woes!
Filming for the flick begins next week in Atlanta and Kim will play the role of Ava, a co-worker and friend to the main character, who “helps her friend gain new confidence with a big city makeover among other things.”
This will be Kim’s third attempt at the big screen – the first two attempts was so completely unmemorable I didn’t even know they happened!
In other news, Kim also took to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate her 31st birthday the only way she knows how! How you ask? Just by getting paid to host her own birthday party at a club! According to reports that came out last year, Kimmie commands up to $250,000 for each of her paid club appearances.
The HollywoodLife blog is however reporting Kimmie might be regretting this latest paid gig as she reportedly got booed at her own birthday party!
The blog states that Kimmie, who held her party at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Oct. 22, was booed after she was introduced!
In fact, Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian, who was also in attendance, reportedly tried to calm the crowd down but unfortunately the rowdy crowd only got louder when Khloe took the mike. Ouch!

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT KIM’S BUDDING FILM CAREER OR HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH OF HER? THOUGHTS ON KIMMIE GETTING BOOED?
“I regret how I acted. I am very sorry and it is so hard for me to watch the show,” tweeted Kim. She later added: “Thank you for your support!! I of course regret my behavior as well and im sure we both wish we could take it back.”
Also speaking out once again about her mean girl behavior is Kyle, who assures us she is absolutely NOT mean in real life! “The last couple of weeks I look like a mean person and I’m not, but you don’t always see everything and it’s hard to explain to people,” Kyle told Wetpaint. “I can say that when I watch it, I think that’s not me.”
Kyle goes on to reveal that she doesn’t have an issue with Brandi while seemingly blaming Brandi’s friendship with Cedric Martinez(Lisa Vanderpump’s former houseguest) as the reason for treating her the way she did.
“I don’t have anything against Brandi, I think she’s a beautiful girl. I think things are misunderstood about her son going to the bathroom on the grass. I don’t have any sons, but I know that little boys do that,” explained Kyle. “There is just a lot of stuff that people don’t see leading up to Brandi coming into the show, amongst all of us girls talking and knowing she is friends with Cedric,” she added.
As for Brandi, she is now firing back at both sisters in her latest Bravo blog. In the excerpt below, Brandi takes back the crystal meth comment she made about Kim but makes it clear she still believes Kim was under the influence of something –
“No, I do not believe that Kim was on crystal meth, and for that I apologize. I am also not 100 percent sold it was merely anxiety medication. Didn’t she tell Kyle she was inhaling air freshener? So maybe I was wrong: it wasn’t crystal meth, it was Febreeze. Under extreme circumstances I have taken anti-anxiety medication, and it did not require me to make 10 to 15 bathroom trips in the matter of four hours. Just sayin’.”
Brandi goes on to slam both Kyle and Kim for taking her crutches –
“When someone is dealing with an injury or a disability, it’s really funny to hide their means of support, right? It’s really funny to hide someone’s crutches. Isn’t it interesting that Kyle and Kim question my etiquette, morals, and upbringing, and yet they hide an injured woman’s crutches? Hilarious. There are three sides to every story and everyone saw the truth. Kyle’s version was entertaining, wasn’t it? I should have gotten a bowl of popcorn and some red vines because that story was straight out of her imagination.”
And finally, Kim Richards recently celebrated her 47th birthday and posted photos on her personal facebook page! In attendance were all four of her children as well as her sister Kyle. Those photos are below!

We are pleased to report that four days following her shattering announcement that she is battling breast cancer and scheduled to undergo surgery related to the disease, E! News host Giuliana Rancic is out of surgery and recovering!
Bill Rancic told the Today show his wife is “doing well” following the surgery and the couple views the shocking discovery as a blessing! “We’re viewing this as a gift; it was caught accidentally very, very early,” Bill said, focusing on the positives.
Giuliana, 37, underwent surgery for a double lumpectomy to remove cancerous tissue from the breasts. The surgery lasted about two hours and was without complications. “She’s a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out,” Bill explained. “She’s doing well at home and recovering.”
“I wish I could take some of the pain away,” he sympathized. “Watching her being wheeled into that operating room was heartbreaking for me. I’m just doing everything I can to support her and make sure that she’s comfortable.” Awww… what a wonderful husband.
Bill also emphasizes that the couple will continue their quest to become parents despite the diagnosis. Giuliana said earlier this week after discovering the cancer while prepping for a third round of IVF: “That baby will have saved my life. There’s some master plan. Now I know that [God] was looking out for me.”
And following Giuliana’s announcement earlier this week, a number of reality stars tweeted their support. Below are some of those tweets –
Bethenny Frankel — “What you’re going through is all that matters @GiulianaRancic @billrancic It puts everything in perspective. Love&prayers are with you”
Jill Zarin — “@GiulianaRancic I think you are so brave and honest to share your life with us. Ups and downs. I know you will be fine….XOXO”
Ramona Singer — “You’re an incredibly strong woman @GiulianaRancic My thoughts and prayers are with you.”
Maci Bookout — “Praying for @giulianarancic. keep going strong, with God u can win this battle against breast cancer!” —
Teresa Giudice — “@GiulianaRancic My thoughts & prayers are w/you doll! You’re strong & beautiful, you’ll get through this & be an even bigger inspiration! Xx”
Patti Stanger — “@GiulianaRancic My prayers are with you…you’ll beat it! Try the penguin caps if you have to do chemo, you won’t lose your hair.”
The best of luck to Giuliana and Bill! We wish Giuliana well in her treatment and recovery.

PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS FOR THE RANCICS – LEAVE YOURS BELOW!
The National Enquirer is reporting that Taylor will be getting the boot once the second season ends. The reason? Apparently Taylor became a “downer” on the show and her costars “complained to producers that she was constantly trying to steal the show.”
The mag adds that Taylor alienated her fellow RHOBH housewives with her nonstop ploys for pity and attention before the suicide tragedy. Even more surprising, Bravo has reportedly told Taylor of the plans to fire her. “Taylor is just a downer,” reveals an insider. “Consoling Taylor has become a full-time job for the rest of the women and this was all BEFORE Russell’s death!”
“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was turning into the Taylor Armstrong therapy show. Whenever the wives are together, Taylor would somehow manage to start crying and complaining about her life,” adds the source. Yikes!
A source is however telling E! News that the story is false and that Bravo has not kicked Taylor off the show. Guess we will have to wait and see if Taylor is really off the show.
In other RHOBH news, now that he has a new show to promote and his ex-wife is eclipsing his celebrity, Kelsey Grammer is speaking out about his marriage to former RHOBH villainess, Camille Grammer! Among other things, he accuses her of threatening to end their marriage for years and states that appearing on RHOBH was the final straw for their relationship!
Kelsey tells interviewer Piers Morgan that Camille was the one who put the pesky idea of divorce in his head! “Camille asked for a divorce really almost the first day we were married,” Kelsey insisted. “If you say you want a divorce enough times, you’re going to get one.” Did she also ask him to cheat on her with a 20-something?
“I think she married me because I was ‘Frasier’,” Kelsey continues, contending that Camille was after his notoriety! Which may be true, but still!
Furthermore Kelsey explains his participation in RHOBH was a “parting gift” to his wife of 13-years, claiming the marriage was in trouble before filming began! “It was my way of saying, ‘Look, you always wanted to be famous. Here you go,’” maintaining that he knew their marriage would not survive once Camille decided to do the show.
Even more shocking, Kelsey admits: “I think what I was trying to do was sell it to myself,” he told Piers of the couple’s relationship. “There was this small voice in the back of my head saying, ‘This isn’t going to work.’ But I stuck to it.” Gee… what a class act. #sarcasm.
As for their divorce, Kelsey concurs his affair was wrong, but he wanted to support Camille in her attempts at fame. “I was trying to do some noble gesture to make the destruction of the previous marriage go easier somehow and that was a mistake,” he said of appearing on HW with her and attending the Tony Awards as a couple. “I should have walked home and said, ‘We’re done. You finally have everything you wanted, and I’ve found a new life.’”
And taking a jab at Camille’s success on Real Housewives, Kelsey snipes that reality TV isn’t a way to achieve real fame, but “you still get attention; you still get all those things that come along for the ride, which I think is what she was most interested in.”
Yeah, I’m going to file this interview under the category of “Things That Leave A Bad Taste In Your Mouth!” I hope neither of the ex-couple’s two children, which they are involved in a nasty custody dispute over, happened to view that interview!
As for Camille she is having none of his excuses! When a fan asked if she watched the interview, Camille responded: “No, I couldn’t watch. I had heard that he was going to be mean and disrespectful.” Poor Camille! Good for her for taking the high road in this latest chapter of their never-ending divorce!
While Camille didn’t have much to say about Kelsey’s callous interview, new Celebrity Apprentice contestant Lisa Lampanelli did! She Tweeted: “Kelsey Grammer: Camille married ‘Frasier’ not me. So she thought she married a pompous self-absorbed alcoholic. Nothing like Kelsey at all!” Buuurn!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE FULL CAST LIST? HOPING FOR A TERESA & VICTORIA SMACKDOWN? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE NEW SEASON?
Days after the Huffington Post reportedBethenny Frankelonly received $8.1 million for the sale of her Skinnygirl drink line, and not the widely reported $120 million, both Bethenny and Forbes are now firing back!
First Forbes is stating they stand by the $100 million figure. If you recall, the Bethenny Ever Afterstar graced the cover of Forbes back in May during which they declared she sold the drink line for $100 mil — $20 mil less than the amount originally reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
So what exactly was the $8.1 mil figure about? Well according to a financial analyst, the $8.1 million is merely the value of the goodwill attributed to the brand.
“The $8.1 million was just the amount of intangible assets purchased in the Skinnygirl transaction, essentially the amount Beam paid for the Skinnygirl brand rights—not the total purchase price,” saidanalyst R.J. Hottovy to Forbes.
So how did Huffington Post’s Rob Shuter get it wrong? Well for starters the actual price Beam paid for Skinnygirl is missing from the 10-Q statement and Bethenny cannot publicly disclose the amount due to a confidential agreement. Beam is also refusing to disclose the amount and they can actually get away with doing that under accounting rules.
“We will continue to disclose accounting data as required to be included in financial filings,” said Beam Global spokeswoman Paula Erickson, “but do not expect that a black-and-white lump sum ‘purchase price’ figure will be made available. Suffice to say, this was not an $8.1 million acquisition.”
So the BIG question now is how much did Bethenny really receive for the sale of her drink line? According to Forbes, that figure is at least $39 million. See Beam listed $39 million in their financial disclosures for acquisitions made in the second quarter of 2011. And as financial analyst R.J. points out, the only acquisition the company made during that period was for the Skinnygirl Drinkline.
“The only deal they announced over that period was Skinnygirl,” said R.J. “This means [Beam] paid at least that much for Skinnygirl [during that period].” He goes on to add that there may be additional elements to the deal not accounted for or visible in company filings, including stock options that could yield Bethenny additional long-term returns.
In addition to the $39 million Bethenny likely received upfront, she also stands to earn up to an additional $25 million. The company’s financial statement revealed “the Company may be required to record contingent consideration in an amount not in excess of approximately $25 million.” That basically means Bethenny stands to earn up to an additional $25 million based on future sales, incentives, meeting high targets etc.
Bethenny herself confirmed this to Forbes stating she’d get “on-going back end”—payments based on how well Skinnygirl’s cocktails sold after Beam took control. Experts say Bethenny should be getting that $25 million as “sales of Skinnygirl have exceeded expectations for 2011 and that threshold will be met this year.”
According to Forbes, this brings “the value of the deal to at least $64 million in this year alone, without accounting for any further payments or other compensation for Frankel.” Bethenny adds, “The acquisition was structured with various potential payout levels based on sales of Skinnygirl products.”
Bethenny of course also fired back at critics. When asked about the reported $8.1 million figure, Bethenny said laughing: “Come on. That it could be the fastest growing booze brand on the market and have sold for that little is just preposterous… I’m going to be paying a hell of a lot more than $8.1 million in taxes.”
As for the Huffington Post, they have since retracted their original errornous report stating they “regret” it.
However, some things are still not adding up. For example, where did the $100 million figure come from? It appears Forbes can only put a $64 million figure on the deal and cannot account for the remaining $36 million. Yes, it’s clear Bethenny potentially stands to earn more, according to her, but it would have been nice if Forbes could further explain how exactly they were able to put a $36 mil figure on that potential income.
Other things that make you scratch your head is the fact that immediately following the Huffington Post’s report, Bethenny quickly removed the Forbes $100 million cover story from her website. Why remove the article if it’s accurate?
Also more odd, Forbes released the statement below to the Huffington Post before they ultimately decided to back Bethenny and themselves on the issue –
“We’re taking this very seriously. We based our numbers at the time of reporting on solid sources. We’re aware of the new information and we’re looking into it right now,” Dan Bigman, Forbes executive editor stated. “We’re going to review all the information thoroughly and talk to Ms. Frankel before taking any steps. If there are any inaccuracies, we’ll correct them. If clarification is required, we’ll do so.”
As for Bethenny, she also tweeted: “Most people are morons. Stay tuned.” She later added, “Only listen to sources you trust. Irresponsible journalism is a waste of your time.” Bethenny also changed her Twitter profile picture to her Forbes cover. That cover is below.
Must say Bethenny should be giving thanks that this Huffington Post report came out just in time to distract the public from Lost-at-sea-gate!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? SOMETHING FISHY ABOUT THE $100 MILLION FIGURE OR MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING?
Royce tweeted: “Good Afternoon! As of right now I have decided NOT 2return 4 Season 4 of BBW due 2 artistic differences.Things may change but as of now, NO!”
After some fans wondered if this sudden change of heart was over money (I mean let’s face it “artistic differences” is usually the code name for I want more money!), Royce denied it was over finances. She wrote: “Some things have Nothing to do with money but All to do with images/careers! Never sell your soul! Respect is hard 2 come by! :-)”
Wow. Even more surprising Royce’s costar Tami Roman then hinted that she might also be leaving the show. “Well ok @Roycelr don’t be surprised-several others may follow…” tweeted Tami.
No word yet on what those creative differences Royce is talking about could be. Perhaps the producers of the show are wanting her to make up with Evelyn,Shaunie O’NealandJennifer Williams in other to remain relevant on the show. After icing Royce out last season by not inviting her to Italy, the three meangirls have stated they no longer want to film with her. And with Meeka Claxton reportedly getting the boot, that leaves Royce with no one to film with except Tami.
And just a few days ago, the NY Post posted the blind item below about Shaunie the show –
“Which producer of a VH1 reality show is fed up with negotiations over contracts for “Basketball Wives?” The producer was overheard telling people that the ladies “better fall in line” or they’ll be booted “like the New York Housewives.”
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Must say the show is in serious danger if Evelyn, Royce, and Tami all decide to walk away!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ROYCE QUITTING THE SHOW? WILL YOU MISS HER ON IT?
A month ago, RadarOnline reported that Adrienne, who hails from the very wealthy Maloof family, was experiencing financial trouble and was forced to downgrade her lavish lifestyle.
Adrienne is now setting the record straight, admitting she is indeed cutting back on her wealthy lifestyle. “Regardless of your income, everybody is cutting back, it’s the responsible thing to do,” Adrienne told RadarOnline about her family’s financial situation.
Adrienne, whose wealth stems from her family’s successful ownership of the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, as well as the NBA team the Sacramento Kings, says while her family is wealthy, they still watch their purse strings.
“This is how we’ve been successful for over 150 years in our family business…. we watch our overheads, we don’t spending frivolously, we take care of our employees and give back philanthropically to various charities — And of course, we always work very hard on all our projects,” Adrienne added.
Even more surprising, Taylor is being romantically linked with another Bravolebrity — Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren(what happened to his relationship with Courtney???). The original report by In Touch Weekly stated Taylor was “spotted openly holding hands with the quarterback-turned-energy-entrepreneur at two separate high-profile events” in Dallas two weekends ago.
Another report by local Dallas columnist OhSoCynthia added that sources inside Matt’s circle revealed he and Taylor “hooked up” in July when the cast was in Los Angeles doing press and publicity.
Matt, while admitting he did spend time with Taylor in Dallas, is however playing coy by giving the PC statement that he and Taylor are just friends. “It’s important for the Bravo family to support each other. Anytime someone’s going through that difficult of a situation I want to be supportive. She’s a friend, and that’s what friends do. She was in town handling business for her situation,” said Matt.
There is another Texas connection with Taylor as Russell is originally from Texas. Taylor continues to lay low though she was photographed about a week ago without her wedding ring.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode! On the 6th episode this season titled “Let The Games Begin,” Taylor’s gal-pal Dana hosts a game night, yet the breezy fun turns dicey when Kim spends an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom. As suspicions rise about Kim, accusations fly. Adrienne also confronts Kyle about her concerns with Kim’s well-being after Kim’s recent, odd behavior.
The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below –
